Susan Boyle Number One In America
SuBo’s album tops chart more than a month before it’s released...
Amazon declared this “the season of Susan” and said the interest in the Britain’s Got Talent sensation was unprecedented. "She has done phenomenally well going to the top of the chart in the US based on one day of pre-orders alone and she's racing up the charts in the UK as well,” an Amazon spokesperson said. “She has really captured the hearts of the nation, both here and in the States."
SuBo’s debut, I Dreamed A Dream, broke records back in 2009 to become the largest global CD pre-order in history; it went on to sell nine million copies and was the biggest selling album of that year. Judging by the buzz around the singer’s new release, she may just top that.
The Gift’s official UK release date is November 8. The album features Christmas classics The First Noel and O Holy Night alongside covers of pop hits such as Hallelujah, Perfect Day and Don’t Dream It’s Over.
